A Day In Edinburgh - Want a Look?

Today we awoke to brilliant sunshine so we decided to take a trip to Edinburgh for the day. Due to the fact that we live right up in the North of England we are only 2 hours away from Scotland's capital city. Edinburgh is stunning at any time of year but at Christmas it is just that little bit more special.
Here take a look
